I can't recall a case where supporting Motif, Lucid or "none" would
have possibly hindered anyone to fix one of the well known bugs with
GTK/GDK, Cairo and friends.  OTOH, I often use Motif, Lucid and "none"
to simply verify that an arbitrary feature just works or used to work
and it's only the GTK or Cairo builds which break it.

So I'm voting against your suggestion.
